At the beginning of the 18th century,
warfare entered a new era. The widespread use of the flintlock musket
had transformed the way armies trained and fought. This period was a
golden age for the crowned heads of Europe. They commanded professional
troops, gloriously outfitted in splendid uniforms, and fought each other
over land, wealth and the succession to their thrones. Some even led
their armies on the field of battle. Yet by the end of the century, the
real power of kings was gone or greatly eroded – parliaments would
decide the foreign policy of nations, democracy had taken hold in the
New World and the divine right of kings was everywhere being questioned.
These were the last wars fought to protect the succession rights of royalty. These wars were the Last Argument of Kings.
This supplement for the Black Powder game overviews the main conflicts
and armies of this period, and includes army lists and special rules to
enable you to refight these wars using the Black Powder rules, as well
as scenarios for the most dramatic battles of the time. Featured
